COVID REPORT: Six New Cases Confirmed Today, Joint Information Center Says


Press release from the Humboldt County Joint Information Center:

The total number of Humboldt County residents who have tested positive for COVID-19 now stands at 479, after six additional cases were reported today.

Wildfires continue to burn across the state, with many evacuees seeking shelter locally in individual households or in hotels, campgrounds, RV parks and short-term rentals. Humboldt County Health Officer Dr. Teresa Frankovich said gathering with those outside of your household is inherently risky in the time of COVID. “As we offer our support to those in need of relief from wildfires, we should all keep COVID-19 precautions in mind.”

For a list of ways to provide shelter as safely as possible in Spanish, go to humboldtgov.org/DocumentCenter/View/89292. For English, visit humboldtgov.org/DocumentCenter/View/89261.

Today’s alert level stands at two or level yellow. Visit humboldtgov.org/dashboard to view the county’s Alert Level Assessment tool.
